Lake Louisa – Campsite #3

Lake Louisa – Campsite #3

Every time I’ve paddled by this site I’ve always thought to myself that it looks like a really nice site, but I’ve never gotten the chance to go on shore to check it out. It was pretty much what I expected, plus more. I didn’t realize the extent of the long rocky shoreline on the west side of the site, or the number of tent spots available, or the several benches and stumps available to accommodate a large group. Most of the tent spots are in the main exposed area of the site, but there are a few sheltered options tucked away among the trees as well. Plus, the landing is super accessible, and there’s a short trail leading to a private little beach cove just beside Site #4 (which would only be appropriate to use if Site #4 was vacant). The site wasn’t in the best condition when I was there, but it’s still a great site that I wouldn’t hesitate to snag if I didn’t want to paddle farther down the lake.
